Prayer for the Canonization of Titus Brandsma

On the occasion of that canonization of Blessed Titus Brandsma, the Carmelite Order offers this new prayer in his memory. In a few short lines, the prayer asks for the grace to be able to see beyond the evil violence of our world in order to encounter our God. The prayer recognizes that violence eliminates the God-given dignity that each person has and the baptismal call that each believer has to be a witness of Christ in the world. This was a value that Fr. Brandsma lived throughout his life— even to his final moments in the horrors of the Dachau concentration camp. What a blessing for our world in 2022 to have faithful men and women pray for the grace to live their faith witnessing in this way.

You will find links to the prayer translated into various languages below.

Prayer for the Canonization of Titus Brandsma

God of peace and justice,
you open our hearts to love
and to the joy of the Gospel
even in the midst of countless forms of violence
that take away the dignity of our brothers and sisters,
fill us with your grace,
so that like Saint Titus Brandsma,
we may in tenderness see beyond the horrors of inhumanity
and contemplate your glory
that shines forth through the martyrs of every age,
and so become your authentic witnesses in the world of today.
Amen.
